(This always annoyed me when I had a long commute.  After a while, my mind would start picking on various story ideas.  I’d still be focusing on the road, of course, but I would think about these things at red … Continue reading

Poetry Day: Careless Infector

(Well . . . This poem was disturbingly prophetic.) I hear you coughing With nothing in your way Spraying toxic spit In the air I breathe Forcing me to join you In a fevered bed of pain No one to … Continue reading

Poetry Day: Breasts and Blood

Poetry Day: Blitzkrieg of Alarms
